We did it! Thank you to the voters of Salem for affirming our city's values and keeping Salem a safe and welcoming place. 


A Yes vote on Ballot Question 1 will keep in place the Sanctuary for Peace Ordinance passed by the City Council in March. The Ordinance codifies existing Salem City and Police Department policies that protect the rights of all Salem residents, regardless of immigration status.

By voting Yes on Question 1 you will be voting to:

  • Keep Salem a welcoming and diverse community.

  • Strengthen public safety by ensuring all immigrants feel safe to report crimes without fear of deportation

  • Support workers, small business owners and taxpayers who contribute to our economy
